Well, this might not be the Channel Orange followup we’ve been waiting for. On Friday, burrito emporium Chipotle sued Frank Ocean for backing out on a deal to deliver a song for an advertising campaign. The suit alleges that Chipotle paid Ocean $212,500 to record a new version of “Pure Imagination,” the song made famous in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, for an ad benefiting the restaurant chain’s sustainable farming program. (Several artists, including Willie Nelson, have contributed to the program in the past.) The track was due back in August, but on the day that Ocean was supposed to deliver the tune, he told Chipotle he would not be delivering. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber is determined to show you how all-grows-up he is.
Last week, the young man dropped the Timberlake-y “Heartbreaker,” but that was just the beginning. His ten-week “Music Mondays” strategy continues today with “All That Matters,” another smooth, low-key R&B jam designed to seduce your ears, and maybe (just maybe) more.
The track even boasts Diplo as a producer, a move that threatens to imbue his new grooves with some bona fide cred.
Does it work? Give “All That Matters” a spin below and find out for yourself:
After a slew of EDM festivals this summer — Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival — New York City’s Electric Zoo served up the season’s last big dose of trance, house, and dubstep.
Featuring a bevy of the biggest names in electronic music performing for three days on New York City’s Randall’s Island, Electric Zoo was an orgiastic, exhausting, often monotonous, occasionally euphoric experience.
In a post on their official website Monday, No Doubt revealed that their long-awaited sixth studio album will be titled Push and Shove, and that its first single, “Settle Down,” will arrive in July. The news follows last week’s announcement of the band’s upcoming set of live performances in support of the album: at the Teen Choice Awards, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Good Morning America‘s Summer Concert Series, all in July.
The question, then, isn’t whether No Doubt still has it. On their last tour in 2009 — meant to inspire the band after an unsuccessful attempt at recording — the group rocketed through its catalog of older and newer hits while Stefani showed that having two kids hasn’t harmed her onstage energy (or her impeccable abs). The real question is: Which No Doubt will fans get to hear this summer? READ FULL STORY
Diplo is the American superproducer behind such dancefloor-filling hits as M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” and Santigold’s “Starstruck.” The Wombats are a trio of Liverpudlians who craft bright, buzzy indie pop concoctions that have made audiences on both sides of the Atlantic shake and swoon. And now, the two camps of jet-setting soundsmiths have come together.
In fact, Diplo got his hands on the Wombats’ new single “Techno Fan” (from their 2011 album This Modern Glitch), and the resulting piece of beat science can be found below in an exclusive Entertainment Weekly premiere. Follow the jump, turn up your speakers and clear some floor space:
